    If the suggested system was implemented having an 'untagged' search option would allow those looking to help out with categorizing the moments we shared with our friends and communities an easier time of going thru archives.

    While the live interactive experience of twitch is the driving appeal of the Twitch platform bolstered by streamer charaisma and community interaction, I believe that having a more robust option with clips can capitalize on a missed opportunity. As suggested above, having additional tags for searching clips can promote the usage and proliferation, and thus exposure, of streamers themselves and the Twitch platform as a whole. My suggested starting tags would be for specific games 'emotions' such as humor and 'feels'. The main drive is to make the captured moments that best exemplify the highlights of the platform more accessible to newer users, i.e. new to that streamer or the platform in whole. I think if tags were applied by the person making the clip it should leave much of the busywork in the hands of fans instead of being a burden to the caster. Alternatively if tags could be 'voted' for application to created clips it could allow us the fans to take the burden off of the caster or their mods of going thru clip archives. Though mod/caster verification for tags may be prudent to prevent potential trolling behavior.
